Moruya River

The river has been producing some nice flathead, whiting and bream down the front lately with fresh nippers as the bait of choice at the moment.  A few salmon and tailor are being caught over the weed beds on metal slices and further up the river, opposite the hospital some whiting are being caught on both blood and beach worms.


The flathead are being caught on the edge of the drop-off down the front with soft plastics being the lure of choice for these in the Atomic 3 inch Prong or the Squidgie Fish Pro 100mm.

The perch and bream are in the snags and with the fresh water coming into the system, they are really on the bite.  The brand new Strike-Pro suspending 2 inch Shrimp lure is currently a smash hit in this area.

Beaches, Rocks and Offshore

Don't go there.  The seas at the moment are too rough to risk fishing - on the whole if you're thinking of fishing off the rocks, outside or on the beaches this weekend, it's a good time for maitenance.

However, before the big blow came through, Captain Ron onboard Winda Woppa reported great catches of both tiger and rock flathead in 40m of water as well as good numbers of snapper, leatherjackets, mowies, sharks, nannygai and pigfish.  Strips of fishbait were the bait of choice for these species.

The run of albacore has started out on the Moruya canyons with some nice fish around 8kg being caught, they are taking small skirted lures for the majority - Black Magic Jetsettters are the ideal size for this.

Remember the fish will always be there another day, so don't be reckless and take on the rough seas.

Happy Fishing!
